You know how some women get all weepy eyed and hormonal at the sight of a newborn and turn to their partner and say, "I want a(nother) baby!"?
Well, I get that way when I look at the Hatch Collection maternity line.
Especially the coats. Oh, god. The coats.
My ovaries just exploded.
I had a summer pregnancy, so there was no need for a coat, but if you are pregnant right now...INVEST.
Don't give me the business about you can just wear your regular coat, it's sized up a little so you can wear a sweater, blah blah blah. Buy a maternity coat. For a more authoritative voice, read this post by the Pregnant Fashionista as to why it's necessary.
And while we're at it, let me add another reason: babywearing.
In the winter, babywearing is often the warmest and easiest way to get around with an infant. You will want a coat that will fit comfortably over the carrier on your shoulders and be able to wrap around the baby in the front. A maternity coat will give you the wiggle room to bundle that baby up and get out for a walk.
Now, please excuse me, I need to convince my husband to have another baby in time to buy that coat.
